Destrehan’s second-half performance last week to break away from a 10-10 tie against Jesuit on the way to a 27-10 triumph may not bode well for Wildcat opponents as the playoffs approach. “It probably was the best half of football we played all year,” Destrehan coach Stephen Robicheaux said. “When you hold Jesuit down to 32 yards rushing, I think that’s a pretty good effort, and to run the...
